is sung beautifully by jerry however, the only version that is worth listening to is on eric clapton's self titled album. this blows the doors off the delaney and bonnie version, and, if you love it by JGB, buy eric clapton eric clapton

I don't think this song is even on the site, is it?

By the way, I'll take the 11/27/77 JGB version any day of the week.

Agree! I listened to EC this morning and although I'm a big fan of his classic band from that era (roughly the Derek and the Dominos linup minus Dwayne) I really prefer what JGB does with the tune.

Take THAT, Ashley, with your one post from May, 2004. :lol:
